    Quick Clot

    Hey y'all..

    I'm looking to supplement my first aid readiness with some Quick Clot, both for in home emergencies and for the vehicles as well.

    Has anyone found a reliable, inexpensive source?

    Salt.... it is gonna hurt like an SOB, but will stop small to medium depth cuts. Coffee grounds work too, not as efficient.

    I sliced my finger open pretty bad with my Karambit, put some hot pepper powder on it, stopped instantly.

    All the officers in my area carry it in the trunk of their cars, if that helps at all.

    http://www.botach.com They just had a sale on the stuff! $15 each, but they made it clear that they had to sell by law as the "expiration date was approaching" however the contents wouldn't really expire as long as the container remained sealed. Normally a 7oz container of the stuff goes for about $25. I bought 3 new ones for my trauma kit, which I am still building.

    The Agriculture supply stores are a great place for other stuff too. Vet wrap is the same stuff Hospitals and Dr.s use for outer wrap on wounds. It's Tan at the Dr. office and adhears to itself, kind of like an ace bandage, but thinner. The Vet wrap is cheaper, but you might have to get purple or bright pink though. A lot of other stuff their is cheaper too. We give out Horses and Dogs and Cats a lot of their shots. Their is always a big bottle of Penicillin in the fridge too. Can't hurt in a SHTF type of scenario too.

    Vets are great sources for cheaper meds. My buddies dog has all types of "ailments". His brother is a vet. The meds are the exact same, but cost about 1/4 the price of "for human consumption" ones.

    The vet styptic powder is very effective, BUT IT IS NOT QUICK KLOT. We use it when de-horning cattle. It sure must sting like hell, but the bleeding stops instantly. Wish I had had some on hand when I laid my finger open with a field knife clearing brush.

    The Amish near us keep a big jug of kerosene in their sawmill in case someone comes up minus a few digits. Apparently it stops the bleeding right quick and in a hurry as well.

    However, if you still want brand name QuickKlot try Galls.

    edited to warn that styptic is not Quick Klot as noted by exsoldier below.

    Quik-Klot is designed to be dumped into a MASSIVE wound like a ripped open belly and form a sort of synthetic tissue by absorbing all the blood nearly instantly. It works on a chemical reaction and can actually burn the hands of the first responder if used improperly. Temperature of the wound spikes to an unpleasant level for approx 2-3 seconds. Use requires pressure on the wound with a bandage or cover to protect first responders skin. IOW, it ain't fun, but you'll be dead a lot longer than it will hurt in the application! The instructions indicate that all the excess fluids or water should be dabbed away or application could be dangerous.

    Lightbulb Some good advice but proceed carefully...

    I agree 100% but the Quik Klot is too specialized a product to try the shortcut.

    Funny thing, the reverse is true too. When my pup caught kennel cough at the groomer, our vet prescribed Hycodan tablets. Would have cost more from them than to get the prescription at Walgreens since it's the same stuff I take at times. However I did not try to get my health insurance to cover the cost! That would have been nice...but...

    I don't know about Quick Clot brand but some others reportedly use potatoe starch as the main clotting agent.

    QC sounds like it uses a H20 activated accelerant to seal the wound.

    Veternary styptic powder is the same as the styptic powder you buy at Walgreens, but not the same as Quick Clot...
